Gate missing and overgrown

Reported via desktop in the Gate - Damaged/ Missing category anonymously at 13:01, Monday 24 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3263017.

Historical pedestrian gate is missing although gate post and some timber remains. The hedge and briers have now totally overgrown the right of way and a sheet of tin has been placed in the gap. The gate is one of two that give access to a village green. The gate has been neglected for many years but we feel this historical gate and right of way should be assessable to all including those that have disabilities.
